I’m From has some of my all time favorite products - the hug mask, fig cleansing balm, rice sunscreen… I could keep going. The honey mask holds a special place in my heart as one of the first mind blowing kbeauty wash off masks I tried. Sure, I get plenty of PR these days, but I used to spend my own hard earned dollars on the Wishtrend website all the time, especially on the honey mask. When I saw a new version of it, I had to have it.

I'm from Mandarin Honey Mask

I’m From Mandarin Honey Mask, available on YesStyle (reward code KBHOBBIT) and Wishtrend (code LUCY15), is a honey based wash off mask promising to help with dullness, irritation, and dehydration. It’s made with Jeju mandarin blossom honey and mandarin peels for a more balanced hydration vs the deeper nourishment of the original honey mask.

How to use

  • Apply after cleansing

  • Leave on for 10-60 minutes

  • Massage with wet hands

  • Rinse off

The glorious marketing materials make the mask color look vibrant, juicy, and orange. In real life, it’s darker / more brown and much less enticing. Color variation in cosmetics is somewhat normal, and I have no reason to believe that my mask is expired or otherwise compromised. But the expectations definitely didn’t match reality here.

Like the original, the mandarin honey mask leaves the skin soft and supple, with a bit of a nourishing layer still noticeable after rinsing. The honey mask is marketed toward dry and combination skin; the mandarin version is supposed to be good for everyone (including oily types). My skin is combination and I can comfortably use either of the masks.

My impressions

Sigh. I’m either getting super spoiled, or this mask is just not that great. While it’s similar to the original I’m From Honey Mask, it somehow still misses the mark. It’s a combination of little things - the color is a strange orange/brown that doesn’t look good in the jar; the scent isn’t pleasant; and the overall user experience is missing that special something. I have no idea what I would have thought if I didn’t compare the mandarin version to the original. Maybe mandarin would have been my holy grail. But alas, I cannot treat it as my first ever honey wash off mask - comparison is inevitable.

This isn’t a bad product, and it does make my skin soft and nourished. But I will always choose the original or the hug (a special edition mix of honey and fig masks) version vs the mandarin one.
